 i.  k  m ���������  r  I  II./  Kettle Vallfey Orchardist  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No   36  GRAND FORKS   B   C, FRIDAY, JULY 6, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  1 GRAN8Y  Merited Rebuke to Criticism  of One of Our Greatest  Industries  The Granby Consolidated company has disbursed more than $20,-'  000.000 in the development and  equipment of its several properties  in the province of British Columbia:  has distributed'close to $20,000,000  in wages, and has always paid the  highest' wages; has paid the coal  mining companies about $9,000,000  for coke, the railways about������7,000,-  000 for freight, and disrributed  more than 810,000,000 among merchants for supplies. It has produced  close Co half of the copper, a seventh of the lode gold and a tenth of  the total silver output of the province.  Ln   all these years and   with   all  of that great wealth production, the  shareholders   have, received    only  S7, HS,0G5 in dividends, or an average of about 3 per cent per  annum  on their investment.    A good   proportion   of   these   dividends   have  bee_n_ paid to^Cana.diap..sharebol.deis,  "while   all   of   the ' profit&jover and  above the dividends   have been   re  invested in development, plant and  improvements   of   the    company's  properties to increase their   production   and   to   render them of   still  greater value to the mining and   industrial development of the country,  in addition to the large disbursements   enumberated, the   company  has contributed by way of direcland  indirect taxation to   the    Dominion  and   iMJvincial   treasuries    several  million   dollars,   representing     the  share   or  interest of  the  public in  the natural   resources   forming  the  subject of the enterprise.  Tbe company's? earnings have been  derived from the lowest grades of  ores successfully mined and treated  in the world's experience in copper  mining, ores which in any other  country would remain neglected  and valueless, but which have been  turned to profitable account only by  exercise of the highest mining and  metallurgical skill.  The foregoing statement, is from  the Mining and Engineering Record  of Vaiicouveiyuid was made by that  paper iu reply lo the criticism by  ljritish Columbia coast newspapers  of the Granby, Ocean Falls and  oilier large companies for operating  '���������closed" towns.  British Columbia derives little  benefit from these foreign corporations, it was charged by one of these  papers. They are consuming our  natural resources, which are ob  tuned for a small ouil.iy. Then-  dividends enrich a foreign country,  one oi these criticisms said. The  'j ran by has been operating in the  province about eighteen years. It  was promoted by Canadians who  . subsequently were only too glad to  sell out at a profit to u cum puny  organized by Americiu capital.  Mrs. Geo. D. Clark, who hah been  ill for'some time, io reported to be  quite low at present  PERSHING'S VETERANS  CHEERED BY PARIS  ' Paris, July 1-.���������Paris went wild  with enthusiasm in acclaiming gratitude to America today. Its millions  cheered themselves hoarse as the  battalion of Gen. Pershing's veterans-swung- along in parade, eager  ness to get to the foe appearing in  every step. First on the program  was the presentation of flags to Gon.  Pershing at Iuvalides.- . Gen. Joffre  and Gen. Pershing then motored  through the city. Paris never before saw such enthusiasm. vThe  American troops start training tomorrow near the battle line.  France's greatest men took part  in the ceremonies at the Invalides.  Troops were massed four deep all  around the court. A great crowd  cheered as the American flag _ was  presented to the American- commander.  ��������� Vote on Second Reading, of  Bill Results 118 For,  "55 Against  0ABIDET PUTS END  TO "CLOSED" TOWNS  There are to be no more "closed"  towns in British Columbia. Hence  forth all towns in this province will  be placed npon the same basis and  corporations exercising proprietorship will come under tbe general  rule.  This action was taken last Friday by the provincial government  ���������through the' minister of - lands, and  affects such towns as Anyox, Ocean  Falls and other points where companies are operating in mining,lum  bering, pulp .production, etc., and  exercising powers'of administration,  such as the permitting or refusing  entry to visitors and conducting  various public utilities.

The ffrst vote was taken on the  substitute amendment moved by J.  A. Tiarrette, of Berthier, calling for  six months' hoist, which was defeated on a division of 1G5 to 9.  Those wbojsupported the amendment were Messrs. Barrette, Paquet,  Boulay, Descarries, Patenaude, ex-  secretary of state,' Giraud, Belle-  mere and Guilbault, on the government side-lit' the house, and Achim,  who deserted the government today. <���������"'���������'  The division on Sir Wilfrid Lau-  rier's amendment was then taken.  The amendment was defeated on a  division of 111 to 62, a government  majority of 49. Members who voted  for the amendment from the government side of the chamber were: Sir  Rodolphe Forget and Messrs. Paten  aude,'Descarries, Barrette, Girard,  Guilbault, Bellemere and Boulay,  while Mondou and Achim, former  government supporters, also voted  in favor of the amendment.  Li o era Is who voted against Sir  Sir Wilfrid Laurier's proposal numbered 2G.  They were:   Hoi:. George  P. Graham, Pardee, Guthrie,   Clark  ���������������������������������  of Pied Deer, McLean of Halifax,  Loggie, Turriff, McMillan, Champagne, Buchanan, Douglas, Boss,  McLean of Queens, Carvell, Cruise  Charlton, .Nesbitt, McCrauey and  Neely.

They con-1  sider that tho allocation of cabinet ���������  positions by Premier Brewster has  definitely established the interior  representation at two members, and  that the coast and island districts  should get all the rest.  It is said that Mr. Sloan has his  eye on the agent-generalship if he  resigns, and he would probably get  a lob of support for the position, as  he is regarded as a "good mixer."  Those who support Mr. Brewster  for the position, if it should become  necessary to resign the-'premiership,  declare that Mr Sloan has not sufficient business ability to handle  the work to the advantage of the  province. Mr. Sloan's supporters  retort in somewhat similar terms.  Prohibition is an element of uncertainty insofar as the probably  action to be taken by the government' is concerned. It is stated,  however, that part of the cabinet  has decided to jam through a bill at  the August session. This expectation is based largely on the fact that  at the by-election promises were  made to the prohibitionists in Victoria in order to get their support  for Mr. Hart.

RUMORS  M VICTO  Mauy of the coal miners at Fernie  resumed    work   on   Tuesday,    the  miners   in    District   IS, by   a large  majority, voting to accept   the   proposed working   agreement   for   the  period of 1917-18 of   Commissioner  Armstrong,    who   has   ordered   the  mine operators to reopen the  mines  on the basis of   this   agreement, recently agreed upon and refused   by  the companies.  The mines were   ac  cordingly thrown open on  Tuesday,  and this dispute, which has   caused  considerable   anxiety   for   the past  four months, is thu3   brought  to   a  satisfactory conclusion as far as  the  public is concerned.   Recurrences of  these disturbances in the coal   ruin  ing industry in the Crow's Nest during the life of the  contract   anj   almost totally removed, as the powers-  vested in the coal commissioner are  piratically unlimited, and   the   men  are assured of further increases periodically in the event of the   cost   of  living advancing, as one of the terms  of settlement specifies an   investigation    of   this   nature   every     four  months, with revision of   rates proportionate to increases or decreases,  agreement is   an average  Fernik, July 6.���������Directions of  W. H. Armstrong, commissioner in  charge of the coal mines situation,  who was appointed as a result of action taken by the Dominion government, have been issued to the  operators. The proclamation orders  the tesumption of work on condr-  tions which the miners agreed by  their vote Saturday to return to  work on Tuesday:  "I hereby direct the owner,-agent  and manager of every coal mine and  coke-producing plont in the coal  fields of southeastern British Columbia and southwestern Alberta.known  as District IS, forthwith to open  said coal mine and said coke producing plant and resume operations," says the order. The following conditions and rates as to employment of labor are set forth:  "The conditions and rates as set  out in the tentative agreement .arranged between District 18 of the  United Mine workers of America  and the Western Coal Operators' association, on or about March, 191 r,  shall apply, with the following additions and amendments:  "(a) Seven and one-half per cent  increase upon all wages scheduled  to said tentative agreement.

C.  tWVlCE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, JULY 6.  1017  If a man wants to bring  down   upon  himself the disapproval of the press and the people of Canada, one  effective way in which he  can do it is to accept an hereditary title.    It  was  only a "few  months ago that a flood of  protest and unfavorable comment came on the  bestowal on a Canadian of such  a  title.    "In  the free  democracy of Canada," M. Kowell  said at that time, "we are not' improving conditions by importing hereditary titles passing  from father to son.   .If this is the first. I hope  it will be the last." This statement,  and   the  sentiments expressed in it, were  echoed  and  re-echoed throughout  Canada.    The  Ottawa  Journal Press (Conservative) said: "Tho pubic attitude in Canada is well expressed in.the  comment of Mr. Rowell," and   the  Christian  Guardian said  it would  like to second with  all the emphasis at its command  the remarks  made by Mr. Rowell regarding  the granting  of Canadian hereditary titles.    Now there  is  another flood   of  protest    because   another  hereditary title has been granted.    "A  lot of  cheap John titles in the paper this morning.  They are getting as common as  dandelions,"  was the  comment of the Toronto Telegram.  "The hereditary title ought to be kept out of  Canada.    This country does not want a little  aristocracy of its own," was  the  comment of  Mail and Empire, and the Liberal Press joined  in  its   disapprobation.     The   Toronto  Star  points  out that at a  recent  conference  in  , Washington, France was represented by M.  Viviani, Great Britain  by Mr. Balfour, the  United States by Mr. Wilson and Mr. Lansing, and Canada by Sir Thos. White and  Sir  George Foster.    In this case  these are only  life-time titles. "No matter what may be said  about them," the Star says, "there is surely  no defence for this new practice of distributing hereditary titles in  Canada."    "They are  conferred," continues the same paper, "in  defiance of a public opinion that is, we   venture  to say, practically universal throughout Ca������-  ada."  memory ofethe loved and lost, and the solemn  pride to have laid so  costly  a sacrifice upon  the altar of freedom."���������Toronto Globe.  i'  The British commander, Sir Douglas Haig,  is a Scot, and his staff is composed for the  most part of young Scotsmen. If we may believe the Washington Star, even the sentries  before his quarters are Scots.  Sir Douglas, coming forth one morning  after breakfast, vvas saluted by a strange sen-  "Who are ye?" he asked the man-in :his  broad Scotch accent.  "Fine, general! An' hoo's yei'sel'?" the flattered sentry answered with hearty politeness.  t  e Bride's Choice  ==^  Nowadays is.a handsome piece of Cut Glass.

Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien,  who is engaged in adding to the comforts of  wounded British soldiers in English hospitals,  tells an amusing���������and affecting���������story of a  soldier who had just recovered from* a severe  wound. ���������  Feeling ill and very homesick, he went to  headquarters to obtain leave of absence. "I  haven't seen my wife for more than a year,"  he said in a most dejected manner.  "Why," said the colonel to whom he had  applied, "I haven't seen my wife for nearly  two year!"  "Well," said tho soldier, earnestly and respectfully, "that may be, sir, but me and my  wife aren't that kind!"  The furlough was immediately granted.

If we had all the money due  us by delinquent subscribers we would be  quite wealthy.  Wishing to  Secure  Good Photographs  You can reach more readers in the Kettle  valley by using The Sun's advertising columns  than through any other medium published in  the Boundarv district.  In spite of the increased cost of material  and paper, The Sun job office is still turning  out high-grade printing at the prices that pre -  vailed before the war.  The Tory papers are working very industriously to shelve Premier Brewster in the  agent-general's office in London. The Nelson  News, the most abject and unconscionable  party slave in the province, appears to be  the ringleader in this conspiracy. When it  comes to misrepresenting the present provincial government, the methods employed by  the News are contemptible.  Conscription carried by a big majority. As  twenty-six Liberal members voted for it, the  government can not take all the credit for  the victory. The Conservative papers, wc are  sorry to note, are working very hard to make  political capital out of the matter.  The chain of houses of the British and Foreign Bible society that stretches across the  Dominion of Canada last year issued Bibles  in a hundred and ten different languages.  Patience without push is not a virtue, but a  vice.  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary -paper. This fact accounts  or the rapid increase in our circulation.  ���������  * ���������  Besides being read by all the intelligent people of Grand Forks, The Sun goes to every  ranch home in the Kettle and North Fork  valleys.

Restitution of all things," and  said  A Public Meeting Will Be Held in the  s> i  on  ��������� BE?  at 8:30'o'Clock  ���������  Chairman of the Workmen's Compensation Board,  Will be Present and Will Give an  Explanation of the  it would be at the second coming of  the Lord (Act* 3: 19-21). Titus  (2: 13) says, we are looking forward  to this "blessed hope." This being  true,'it can easily be seen who is to  .blame for the world not being converted. The simple truth is, God did  not want it converted now, but will  do it in his "due time" aad way.  Jesus did not try to convert the  world (See Mat. 9:13 l6,John"17:9).  But, asked the speaker, ; what has  God been doing? The Bible answer  is satisfactory. When Jesus takes  his.power and begins this thousand  year reign, "God has ordained that  144.000 joint heirs (Rev.'14: 1,4,  Rome 8: 17) shall sit in the throne  with him, and assist in the work of  blessing, ruling 'and judSing. (See  Rev. 3: 21,-1 .Cor. 6: 22, Rev. 20: 4,  6.) Rev. 20: 5 is not found in the  oldest manuscripts.  Hence, the world must remain  under the curse until this work of  "electing" out these 144,000  "Saints," "Joint-heirs," "Kings and  Priests" is completed. Tt is not for  this "Kingdom" that the groaning  creation is waiting (Rom. S: 19-22).  When the Kingdom class is completed, the first resurrection (Rev.  20: 6) unites them to the Lord in  glory. Then the Kingdom is set up,  the blessing and conversion of the  world begins, and this includes also  the conversion of the dead as well as  of tbe living. Hence all of the dead  are to be raised (John 5.28,29, Rom.  14: 9, Acts 24:15). The heathen,the  idiocic.the insane, the benighted and  ignorant of our own land are to hear  for the first time of God's mercy,and  love and grace,and,be brought to a  knowledge of the truth, (I Tim. 2:3,  4) and hear of the "only name given  under heaven" whereby we can be  saved. This kingdom will bind satan  as a preliminary, and a necessity,  and proceed to educate and bless  (Heb. 8:7,13). There will be m>  conflicting creeds to confuse them.  After this kingdom reign has accomplished its-,work there is to be a final  test of heart loyalty at ihe end of  J QUO years (Rev. 20: 7 9). The wilful ones to be destroyed in second  duath-(Rev. 22: 8, II Thes. 1:9. Job  36:6, Psa. 145:^20, Heb. 2: 14). The  righteous to dwell on the earth forever (Psa. 37: 29). The world will  be fully converted (Phil. 2: 9-11).  You can not reach The Sun's  numerous readers except through  the columns of The Sun.  The Sun is always a live issue   in  Grand Forks.
